Review summary

We feel that Celebrity in general is over rated. This cruise reaffirmed our past feeling. We would only book Celebrity again if there were special circumstances. We enjoyed the cruise, but we expected better quality food. On two evenings we ordered soup for our main course because there were not items on the menue which were appealing to us. It appears the Celebrity has lowered the quality of there food in the main diningroom to encourage people to book specialty dinning. This is not acceptable to us.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Service was very good. Of the six cruises we have taken this year, the food was by far the poorest. Three of our meals were uneatable. Very disappointing for a quality line like Celebrity

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Plenty of lectures - most all activities were geared for the age group on the ship. Not very creative

Contract acts were fabulous. Production programs were sub-par

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service was excellent in every phase of the cruise. No complaints at all.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
It was very good. There seemed to be mass confusion in the buffet - we felt it was not well designed. Always seemed overcrowded

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
It was more roomy than some other ships and was acceptable

Ship tip

Lower your expectations.
